A short canoe down the Housatonic River. All slack water. The cache
is on an island roughly a mile and a half down-river.
The cache is a medium-sized 'lock-n-lock' container, but is also 'disguised'. It is placed high enough to be above the river's high-water levels (I hope!) This is a very pleasant section of the river, that doesn't require any white-water skills, along the back side of the Bartholomew's Cobble Reservation, with a good chance of spotting a heron or two. The Cobble is worth a visit while you are here. (visit link) The very adventurous could also approach the cache from the dam at Falls Village, CT, but it would be a long paddle (15 miles round-trip) with one very short bit of white water at an old, failed dam. This is about 5.25 miles north of the boat launch at Falls Village, and can be portaged. I've paddled it down-river in a kayak, but have never tried to paddle upstream. You would need experience and the right boat.
